    I want to convert a butt load of videos so I can play them on my Droid. What codecs are support on the Droid and what would be the best resolution/aspect ratio?

    I used a program called free video encoder. I converted my files to mp4 format. As far as resolution the program lets you choose anywhere between very low to very high quality. It also lets you choose to keep the video at the same quality. Since most my vids were already in high or good quality both the high quality and keep the same options looked about the same. I have converted mpg mpeg flv and avi. I haven't tried mov quicktime files since I have none. I've played mp4 3gp and wmv files without converting straight on the Droid. However some wmv I have d/l from the browser on the Droid need an additional codec only the audio plays no video. I would recommend using mp4 since it seems to look and sound the best to me. As far as actual aspect ratio numbers ,sorry I can't help I use the default settings for that when I convert.

    That looks better. The one I found looked pretty sketchy.

    Yeah I have used a couple programs from that site and they were the same, simple but clean. You have to watch out for those "free" programs. Most of the time they are bogged down with ads, contain spyware or are only trial versions that don't get the job done.

    It's a pretty decent converter, I wind up using it from time to time. Here is the publisher's website: http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

    They do kind of make it a PITA to get to the download link, but that bit of aggravation is worth it for what it does for the price of $free.

    Droid support H.264 video format, I just try my video converter and found it support H.264. You can try this good software too, it is 30 days free for trial.

    Download it from here: http://www.aimersoft.com/video-converter.html#161
